After three months and more than 120 inquiries, Gear.com is stoked to announce our three inaugural Give-A-Buck Scholarship winners: Kyle Banzon, Keagan Cross and Kaj Hansen. The winners, chosen for their genuine passion for the outdoors and a desire to pay it forward, will receive a minimum of $500 worth of gear to outfit their adventures.
“At Gear.com, we’re all about getting more people outside—the sooner, the better. We were so impressed by every application we received in the first round. These young people find inspiration from the outdoors and better yet, they want to share it with their friends and community. Kyle, Kaj and Keagan are incredibly deserving of the Give-A-Buck Scholarship, and we are stoked to welcome them to the Gear.com family." -Brig Graff, Gear.com Chief Operating Officer.
The scholarship complements Gear.com’s Give-A-Buck program. On every purchase, Gear.com gives 20% back: 10% back to the customer for their next purchase, and 10% to someone of the customer’s choice. Each finalist is guaranteed a $500 gear credit provided by Gear.com, but there is no limit to the Give-A-Buck proceeds the finalists can collect throughout the quarter.
